Various procedures are used to disinfect swimming pool water. Alongside the conventional metering of chlorine, use of cost-effective and environmentally-friendly electrolysis systems is also worthwhile for private pools.

The right way to disinfect
Disinfecting swimming pool water usually involves setting a chlorine concentration of 0.4 - 0.6 mg/l in the pool water. Calcium hypochlorite and sodium hypochlorite (sodium-calcium hypochlorite) are usually the products of choice. The latter is very often used in smaller pools as the use of storage tanks and chemical costs are easy to manage. ProMinent supplies ready mounted, automatic measurement, control and metering systems to accurately meter the chemicals needed. These systems continuously measure all hygiene parameters and therefore guarantee consistently superlative water quality in private pools.
Electrolysis Chlorine and sodium hydroxide are produced in-situ in electrolysis by passing an electric ... more in the glossary systems are particularly an attractive alternative for safe disinfection: by producing the disinfectant on-site, the systems remove the need to store and handle dangerous chemicals. The minimal use of chemicals also ensures environmentally-sound operation and reduced operating costs.
